Editorial Reviews

Product Description


Richard is King. A monarch ordained by God to lead his people. A man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 years. RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs David Tennant in the title role of ‘a definitive production of a great play’. (Daily Mail)

Press Reviews
"David Tennant is mesmerising in the first show of Gregory Doran's six-year plan to present all of Shakespeare's works. A beautifully crafted, richly detailed production. " (The Guardian ★★★★)

"Gregory Doran's exceptional production is a rousing triumph." (The Observer ★★★★)

"David Tennant gives a bravado performance of a multi-layered, complex and intelligent medieval king in Shakespeare's masterful history play. Gregory Doran's production is superbly orchestrated. This is a lucid, moving production packed with tremendous performances. From Michael Pennington's John of Gaunt, the last great Englishman, to Oliver Ford Davies's wonderfully bewildered Duke of York." (The Daily Express ★★★★★)

"One of the hottest tickets of the year." (The Times ★★★★)

"A lucid and gripping account of Richard II. David Tennant is in splendid form here. In his gorgeous, gold-embroidered robes, this Richard is wrapped in the mystique of medieval majesty. There isn't a weak link in the cast. Ferocious eloquence overcomes deathbed infirmity in Michael Pennington's superb portrayal of John of Gaunt, and Oliver Ford Davies gives a fine edge of grumpy comedy to the Duke of York's conscience-stricken dithering." (The Independent ★★★★)

"David Tennant delivers a vivid, intelligent performance in Gregory Doran's clear, detailed and dynamic production. One of the year's hottest tickets. Oliver Ford Davies's Duke of York is an unalloyed delight." (The Evening Standard ★★★★)

"Michael Pennington is little short of magnificent as John of Gaunt." (The Daily Telegraph ★★★★)

"Nigel Lindsay's Bolingbroke is a palpably dangerous figure… Jane Lapotaire turns the Duchess of Gloucester into a silver-haired figure whose widowed grief manifests itself in a burning appetite for revenge." (The Guardian)

"A fine, restrained Michael Pennington gives desperate dignity to John of Gaunt's lush – sceptred isle and silver sea – lament for England. Emma Hamilton brings a lovely grace to the small, beguiling part of Richard's wife. As the Duke of York, Oliver Ford Davies is radiantly authentic. He delivers many speeches as if he were quietly arguing with himself and the audience were eavesdropping. When he erupts into violent confrontation he is shattering." (The Observer)
